what to bring

Whatever toiletries you use at home, buy duplicates and put them in the A/S. This really cuts down on the amount of time you spend packing personal items.

I've also found that keeping an extra set of clothes (for both warm and cold weather) is handy. Keep an extra pair of shoes too. Oh, and a good set of foulies will get you through hook-ups in the rain.

We don't have a television in Felix (can't see the point in being glued to the tele when you're surround my mother nature), but we have an overhead compartment filled with all types of games. This is a flashback to my husband's childhood, they always had a "game drawer" in their TT. We also keep a supply of magazines.

I also have my "pretties" - the vintage fan the exact color of the curtains, the brown and aqua candles, the aqua and brown circle rugs that match the curtains (and the fan) the vintage pin-up girl pictures, etc.

Sound System.....

Bose surround sound - that's the boomer end of the Acoustimass module peaking out of the circular hole in the door to the left of the cabinet.

Don't hardly use the TV - soon to be relagated to other duties.

Since we are living in our Airstream, my "improvements" would probably not be what you would need or even want in your trailer. A lot of this stuff just was brought along when we left home, and I have managed to find spots for it.
We have:
19" HD flat panel tv for the living room
15" flat panel tv fro the bedroom
dvd player for the bedroom
dvd burner in the living room
playstation2 in the living room
household-type thermostat for the a/c. this turns the fan off when the temp reaches its setting, makes it a lot quieter inside.
better, thicker mattresses
more and better ventillation, as in Fantastic vents.
Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Remote In-Out Thermometer

A digital indoor-outdoor remote sensing thermometer with memory is a must. We place the remote sensor in the refrigerator while travelling, during setup or when switching from electric to propane. After temperatures have stabilized, the remote can be mounted outside...just don't forget it on the picnic table.

I have a Dad's "must packing list" that I make sure is onboard the Airstream.

A bottle of semi-sweet white wine, a bottle of red wine, a french bagget
butter, a nice assortment of cheese, black olives, at least three CD of soft music, and big comforter with pillows.

Everything on Mom's list is available at the nearest /Super Wal-mart.
